EMS 12-Lead: 59 Year Old Female – Intermittent Head Pain

One of my co-workers told me that she wants to see more case studies.

A 59-year-old female presents to the emergency department with a chief complaint of “head pain that comes and goes.”

She describes the pain as a dull ache in her occiput that’s been striking without warning a couple of times per day for the past ten days. Over the last three days she’s noted that it has also been radiating into her neck and upper back/shoulders.

Because of her vague symptoms and pain that involves her back/shoulders, a 12-lead ECG is performed soon after arrival.
